Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

DenizBank Credit Facility and 2019 Term Loan. On August 23, 2016, the Turkish branch of TransAtlantic Exploration Mediterranean International Pty Ltd (“TEMI”), a subsidiary of TransAtlantic Petroleum Ltd. (the “Company”), entered into a general credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with DenizBank A.S. (the “Lender”). The Credit Agreement is a master agreement pursuant to which the Lender may make loans to TEMI from time to time pursuant to additional loan agreements.

 

On February 22, 2019 the Lender entered into an additional $20 million term loan (the “2019 Term Loan”) with TEMI under the Credit Agreement. The 2019 Term Loan is in addition to the Company’s term loans currently outstanding with the Lender, as described in the Company’s previous periodic reports filed from time to time with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company will use the proceeds from the 2019 Term Loan for general corporate purposes.

 

The 2019 Term Loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 7.5% (plus 0.375% for Banking and Insurance Transactions Tax per the Turkish government) per annum. The 2019 Term Loan has a ten-month grace period during which the 2019 Term Loan bears interest but no payments are due other than a single interest only payment of $0.76 million in August 2019. After the ten-month grace period, the 2019 Term Loan is payable in fourteen monthly principal installments of $1.43 million plus interest. The 2019 Term Loan matures in February 2021. Amounts repaid under the 2019 Term Loan may not be re-borrowed, and early repayments under the 2019 Term Loan are subject to early repayment fees.

 

The 2019 Term Loan is guaranteed by Petrogas Petrol Gaz ve Petrokimya Urunleri Insaat Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (“Petrogas”), Amity Oil International Pty Ltd (“Amity”), Talon Exploration, Ltd. (“Talon Exploration”), DMLP, Ltd. (“DMLP”), and TransAtlantic Turkey, Ltd. (“TransAtlantic Turkey”) (collectively, the “Guarantors”). Each of the Guarantors is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

The 2019 Term Loan contains standard prohibitions on the activities of TEMI as the borrower, including prohibitions on encumbering or creating restrictions or limitations on all or a part of its assets, revenues, or properties, giving guaranties or sureties, selling assets or transferring revenues, dissolving, liquidating, merging, or consolidating, incurring additional debt, paying dividends, making certain investments, undergoing a change of control, and other similar matters. In addition, the 2019 Term Loan prohibits Amity, Talon Exploration, DMLP, and Transatlantic Turkey from incurring additional debt. An event of default under the 2019 Term Loan includes, among other events, failure to pay principal or interest when due, breach of certain covenants, representations, warranties, and obligations, bankruptcy or insolvency, and the occurrence of a material adverse effect.

 

The 2019 Term Loan is secured by a pledge of (i) the stock of TEMI, DMLP, TransAtlantic Turkey, and Talon Exploration, (ii) substantially all of the assets of TEMI, (iii) certain real estate owned by Petrogas, (iv) certain Gundem real estate and Muratli real estate owned by Gundem Turizm Yatirim ve Isletmeleri A.S. (“Gundem”), (v) certain Diyarbakir real estate owned 80% by N. Malone Mitchell 3rd and 20% by Selami Erdem Uras, and (vi) certain Ankara real estate owned 100% by Mr. Uras. In addition, TEMI has assigned its Turkish collection accounts and its receivables from the sale of oil to the Lender as additional security for the 2019 Term Loan. Gundem is beneficially owned by Mr. Mitchell, his adult children, and Mr. Uras. Mr. Mitchell is the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. Mr. Uras is the Company’s Vice President, Turkey.

REAFFIRMATION OF GUARANTY

 

The undersigned is the guarantor (the “Guarantor”) under that certain Guaranty dated June 13, 2012 (as amended, restated, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Guaranty”), in favor of TAT, pursuant to which Guarantor guaranteed all obligations, amounts, and liabilities that Maker is obligated to perform or pay to TAT pursuant to the terms of the Note (as such obligations, amounts and liabilities are amended by the terms of this Amendment and as further amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Guaranteed Obligations”).

 

Guarantor hereby acknowledges that his consent is not required in connection with this Amendment and agrees that the Guaranty remains in full force and effect and that the Note and the terms and conditions of that certain Pledge Agreement, dated as of April 19, 2016 (the “Pledge Agreement”), between TAT, as secured party, and Maker, as pledgor, do not impair, limit, abrogate or reduce in any manner or to any extent the Guaranteed Obligations. Guarantor remains fully liable under and pursuant to the Guaranty to the fullest extent as if the Pledge Agreement were in place and the terms and provisions of the Note had been incorporated into the Note when originally executed. Guarantor acknowledges that the Guaranteed Obligations are not impaired, limited, abrogated or reduced by (i) any taking, exchange, release, or non-perfection of any collateral, or any taking, release, amendment, or waiver of, or consent to departure from, any guaranty, for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or (ii) any manner of application of collateral, or proceeds thereof, to all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations (unless such application satisfies the Guaranteed Obligations in full), or any manner of sale or other disposition of any collateral or any other assets of the Maker for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations.

 

Guarantor agrees that the Guaranty may not be amended, restated, or released (other than as set forth in the terms thereof) without the prior approval of a majority of those directors of TAT who are not also officers or employees of TAT.
